Earth Fair

Saturday, October 7, 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
at the Gualala Arts Center

Matrix of Change and Gualala Arts proudly present the 2006 Earth Fair in the Coleman Auditorium.

Earth Fair This year, Earth Fair will conduct one workshop and one forum. One will be on solar energy and the other on growing your own food.

The solar energy workshop will focus on teaching the attendee to identify the system components needed and how to do the preliminary research and design for a cost- effectiveness evaluation on the type of system desired.

As October has been declared "Eat Local Foods Month," we will celebrate by holding The First Annual Farmers Forum. It is designed as a panel discussion with reference displays, and will focus on what it takes to start and maintain a personal or community garden.

Those attending the Earth Fair workshop and forum will be given several opportunities to view the exhibits.

Earth Fair Earth Fair's focus is Sustainability and Local Self- sufficiency. Each year we bring to the public displays, vendors, and educational opportunities focusing on solar energy, energy conservation, environmental issues, goods produced locally, and community support organizations.

The opening ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m. with the blessing of the fair. Displays, vendors, and workshops will begin at 10:30 a.m. and will carry on as late as 3:00 p.m. There is no entry fee, but we will let your conscience be your guide as to the size of your donation based on your Earth Fair experience.

Located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, the Arts Center is open weekdays 9 am to 4 pm, and weekends from noon to 4 pm. Please call (707) 884-1138 for more information.
